After a comparatively cooler March, the month of April has commenced with high temperatures. Now temperatures are soaring across the country particularly, the Central part of the country is heating up significantly.
The hotbed of the country is at present Maharashtra and Gujarat. Most of the cities which recorded maximum temperatures 40 degrees or more are in these states.
Khargone in South Madhya Pradesh recorded 43.5 degrees and is the hottest city for today. In Gujarat, Surendranagar, Rajkot, Amreli, Bhuj, Deesa, and Kandla have recorded 40 degrees or more maximums.
In Maharashtra Malegaon, Bir, Sholapur Jalgaon and Parbhani recorded maximums, 40 degrees or more. We can say that temperatures will increase further and will be in mid-forties by the end of next week.
The temperature of Northern Plains is also expected to increase now. Many parts of Rajasthan have already recorded maximums between 37 and 39 degrees. Eastern parts of the country also heating up, and parts of East Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal and Orissa recording maximums between 36 and 38 degrees.
We do not expect any significant weather activity over Gujarat, Maharashtra and interior Karnataka as well as over Rayalaseema therefore, the temperature of these areas will rise further. So we can say, the interior parts of the South Peninsula, as well as Central and northwest India, will experience above normal temperatures in the coming days.
